Hi,

I set a Belgian Ale variation going on the 3/9/06.The start gravity was
1072

I took a measurement on the 18/9/06 and then again today (21/9/06) and
the gravity has been 1022 on both readings.

Is this a stuck fermentation and should I pitch more yeast, or should I
just bottle it now?

Thanks,

Richy

There is 250g of non-fermentable lactose in my brew, so that accounts
for the higher end gravity I think.

Why did you put lactose in your brew?

I like to experiment and not stick to the rules :) I said it was a
variation hehe it probably won't end up anything like it but I started
off with a Belgian Ale extract for the base and added certain things to
it.

I bottled it a few days ago, and I've had some tastes of it while
bottling - don't we all? - and it tasted real good. Strong too, at
about 7.2%

If you added unfermentables then you are probably done but with that
high of a SG I'd let it go a couple weeks longer.
